Engaging young people with museums.
Making museums relevant to the next generation has never been more important.
Our project involved a wide range of young people through events and activities, training opportunities, research, volunteer placements, social media and many more new and innovative ways to help them explore heritage through our collections.
We collaborated and consulted with young people and worked with a range of additional partners and organisations from across Scotland. Our original consortium partners on Scotland 365 were Young Scot, Project Scotland and Impact Arts.
By listening to the voices of young people National Museums Scotland recognised the need to recruit a national youth engagement team to develop a relevant programme of work and test a range of different engagement methods.
Working with one of our consortium partners, Young Scot, a team of 31 dedicated young people signed up as volunteers and took on the task of exploring the needs of their peers by producing ideas and prototypes.
